The Japan Trend Shop is selling an oxygen pack to help people train at a more intense level by breathing a more oxygenated mix than is available naturally. Apparently manufactured by Mitachi Industry, the Oxyfit was announced back in 2008 and is now available for $2,681 plus shipping. We won’t comment on the actual benefits this thing promises to bring to your exercise routine and overall health, but a serious talk with your doctor would be appropriate before investing in the device.
Some hype from the product page:
Lightweight and discreet, it can be worn during nearly any activity, and boosts available oxygen from 20% or lower up to 30%. Not only can this help with fatigue and other symptoms of low oxygen, but it can actually boost brainpower and metabolism as well. More oxygen lets you run farther, work longer, and even lose weight! An increased supply of oxygen speeds up your body’s metabolic engine, burning more calories and stimulating fat loss. Finally, the improved circulation from increased oxygen levels can produce nootropic (brain-stimulating) and anti-aging effects (through increased moisturization of the skin).
